F- Forlorn


Print
It was a beautiful day. The bus stopped for a while and we jumped in to munch something.

My wife, beautiful and gentle, stayed cautious of everything around her. She always emphasized on taking proper safety measures.

I asked my son to watch his mom first, observe her and walk exactly like her.

Little did I know that sparkle in my son’s eyes to watch his mother walk the road would be splashed 
into fumes.

Headlines said:

A woman hit by a speeding bus, flipped 25 feet above the ground level. Now in coma, the doctors haven’t said anything about recovery.
